United Federal Credit Union gives to Washoe County schools
United Federal Credit Union presented four $1,000 checks to Washoe County schools recently to bolster curriculum and advance technology.
The donations stem from a UFCU sweepstakes for free balloon rides held during the Great Reno Balloon Race in September. For every sweepstakes entry, the credit union decided to donate $1 to a local organization. Washoe County schools were chosen to be the recipients.
Schools receiving the donations were Galena High School in Reno; Peavine Elementary School in Reno; Yvonne Shaw Middle School in Sparks; and Spanish Springs High School in Sparks.
The plan will address safety, mobility, connectivity and traffic-operations issues resulting from increased population and employment growth in the region.
